Greater Noida: In wake of the present academic session coming to an end, the college authorities have started gearing up for improving their placement charts by inviting various companies for campus interviews.

There are over 80 engineering and management colleges in the knowledge park.Barring a few colleges, majority of the students of these colleges have not yet got desired job placement.

However, colleges are making arduous attempt in getting their students placed somehow, which will give boost to the admissions for the next academic session.

They are making rigorous efforts to upgrade their placement graphs.They are even offering lucrative perks to lure the companies for hiring their students. However, the nature of perks too differ.While smaller firms are being offered costly gifts and tour packages across the country, which depends on the market value of the company as well as on the vacant posts on the other
Big fishes in the market are being lured with offers ranging from foreign tours to cars.

According to sources, the companies too are getting attracted towards such offers.

Director of GNIT College, SN Saran said, “Both, bigger as well as smaller companies are visiting the campuses to hire students.The benefit of small firms coming for campus placement is that even the average students get placements after completion of their course.”

Depending upon the benefits,only smaller firms are heading for campus interviews. They include the companies in retail sector, private banks, BPOs, consultancies and insurance companies.

The engineering and management students on the other hand, in the dearth of jobs are a harried lot. “As the academic session inches closer to the end, the search for a desired job gets more intense. But in the absence of good offers, we end up taking up jobs in smaller organizations which hire students on less salary package,” students complained.

Placement official of Harlal College, Neeraj Sharma said, “Initially students get ample opportunity to work with small companies. But With their working experience with smaller firms, they can get a better career break for working with bigger companies.”
